Don, excellent review in  Dan Brown's blog. Also read Jerry Coyne's review. You have some heavy weights on your side. Thanks for the lovely photo of your snow scene. It looks so quiet.

Jerry Coyne gave POLLY a boost on his popular blog the day it came out, and on the heels of that the Richard Dawkins Foundation website picked it up.  Tough to get any traction in the crowded world of books these days, but every little bit helps.

Thanks, Randall--it's a book all young readers who enjoy fantasy will love--especially young heathens.  And, in the minds of young theists, it's bound to provoke some serious thought.

Congrats, Don!  On the book, not the breakfast! Although, an omelet sounds good. I had plain old cold cereal which I couldn't taste because of my cold.

You all have a warmer day than I'm having (in Indiana).

Cheddar cheese omelet and whole wheat toast with raspberry jam.  Excellent Guatemalan coffee.  Off to a book-signing and reading this morning and another one tomorrow at the estimable Northshire Bookstores in Saratoga Springs, New York, and Manchester Center, Vermont. 

Terrific new review of POLLY yesterday in Vermont's entertainment weekly, "Seven Days," and another this morning on cli-fi aficionado Dan Brown's blog.

Love the mugs--message is short and sweet.

No coffee this morning. I'm fasting for a blood test. IIIEEEEE!!!!

Pat, believe me, I'd love to get a BUNCH of 'em.  Problem is, we got no cupboard space!  PHOOEY!

Loren, GC, and Bertold, you've all given me some great ideas for holiday shopping. Honestly, if I had the cojones,there's one I'd get an attorney I work with who's also an ordained minister. Guess he passed the chicken bone prognosticator test. Anyway, I love this mug. Might just get it for myself.

Since we're in somewhat of a gift shopping vein here, some may want to check out for great holiday gift ideas. Their marketing statement:

No industry has inflicted more suffering than the Motivational Industry. Motivational books, speakers and posters have made billions of dollars selling shortcuts to success and tools for unleashing our unlimited potential. At Despair, we know such products only raise hopes to dash them. That’s why our products go straight to the dashing! Enjoy!
